“A good compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do. You’ve got to kick off with a corker, to hold the attention…..and then you’ve got to up it a notch, and you can’t have white music and black music together, unless the white music sounds like black music, and you can’t have two tracks by the same artist side by side, unless you’ve done the whole thing in pairs, and … oh there are loads of rules.”
― Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

Words have meaning. And Names have power.
The universe began with a word, you know.
But which came first?
The word or the thought behind the word?
There are only so many words out there,
so it’s inevitable that songs will wind up with the same title…..they’re rarely similar though, which can always be fun if you happen to find the wrong song….
Tonight, we bring you a selection of curiosities that both sound the same….and also very, very different!

“Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.”
— Hunter S. Thompson
